Your Turn


I found this side angle photo of Suri Cruise today and side views are interesting because you can sometimes see things you could not otherwise get and people look remarkable different from the side. It also got me thinking about who you think her father is. Best guess?

The same answer it's always been: Chris Klein.

Twinkle Toes said...

William

Terri said...

I'm usually pretty good at spotting the facial features, but I have no idea because all I see in her is Katie Holmes. I do not see any Tom in her though.

Cake said...

I think Tom is the father

Beth said...

Twinkle Toes, who's William? William Mapother?

Vicki Cupper said...

In a parallel universe, Cake.

From this picture I'd say Chris Klein.

Merlin D. Bear said...

Not Tom Cruise.
L. Ron Hubbard maybe?

hunter said...

I've always been down with the Chris Klein guess.

KaySea said...

I didn't realize her paternity had ever been in question before ...

Vicki Cupper said...

Beth, one of the more out there rumors about her real father was that Katie was artificially inseminated with William Mapother's Scientolosperm. Doesn't gel (no pun intended) with the missing 2 weeks before Katie was replaced with KatieBot, though.

spacecowboy78 said...

@ Beth, she meant William Mapother I believe.

Vicki Cupper said...

KaySea, surely you're joking.

Side view doesn't resemble Chris Klein

This is the best profile pic of William Mapother I could find. http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02065/marling-mapother_2065035b.jpg


Out of the two, I'd guess Wm. But I had never even heard of him until this post. lol

Terri said...

after looking at this picture, I say Chris Klein. He and Katie have similar features (high cheekbones, almond-shaped eyes, pointy chin) that Suri also has.

I think Hubbard's the baby daddy:

Chris Klein

Regardless of paternity, at least Suri's not in heels!

Ethan from Lost. (I refuse to acknowledge him by any other name).

Patty said...

I see Tom in her eyes and upper face. They only Katie I see in her is her hair.

BB the Kidd said...

come on guys, clearly it's Ross Perot

cBonnie said...

Damn! AFR1KA I'd say you found the best support yet. The resemblance is uncanny in those pictures. Joshua Jackson it is!

pilly said...

I thought the daddy was some cameraman?!?!?

nolachickee said...

James Van Der Beek. She kind of looks like Dawson.

chopchop said...

I think Tom is her father but she was not conceived via intercourse. I do have to say she looks very appropriately dressed in this photo, though! Age & weather-appropriate, believe it or not.

Fijigrrl said...

Im with you chopchop

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

It's Josh Hartnett. Everyone forgets that Katie dated him between Klein and Cruise, but she did, and he is.

Gabby said...

@Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors - I can totally see Hartnett in her face!

EmEyeKay said...

Here's my exact thoughts. Scroll down, read "Your Turn". See photo, think, who is that? Think, it must be Suri, it looks like Tom Cruise. Read post. Read comments. Type this.

She looks like Tom!

EmEyeKay said...

(don't believe he's sleeping with Katie Holmes, though.)

NaNa LaLa said...

I've always thought she resembles Josh Hartnett...

alyssastinks said...

Travolta, obviously.

Anonymous said...

I've never thought she was Tom's kid. I believe Tom is sterile. But I have just pored over pictures of Chris Klein, Josh Hartnett and Joshua Jackson, and now I think Suri looks like all of them. But she's got that Cruise nose starting to show up. I seriously have no clue.

Ivy said...

I think she looks like Tom especially in the nose.

RenoBlondee said...

Josh Hartnett.

tealily said...

Yeah, I too am on the Tom via IVF team.

Gouda said...

Never commented on this site, although am a multiple-times-daily reader, and have been for years!

@LittleMissSmokeAndMirrors is completely right - for some reason, people gloss over the Josh Hartnett phase, but it was about a month before Tom debuted Katie as his new "girlfriend." I was living in NYC at the time, and I remember that Josh and Katie were often spotted in the East Village, and she was apparently head-over-heels in love with him. It was a few months after Ted C (back when he was readable and not a joke) warned us that Tom would be debuting a new girlfriend soon after Sofia Vergara fleeing him and his needing to go through audition rounds for a new woman.

califblondy said...

Forget the who's the daddy thing, what's with the boxing stance? Ugh, if my kids ever pulled that even joking around, they got told it was NOT funny. I believe Suri was with Mom and Grandma that day. Who is she wanting to punch? I bet this little kid is one unholy terror.

msgirl said...

I highly doubt Tom would allow any child to be another man's, unless it is from COS. ANd of course this is an Immaculate Conception whoever it is!

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Agree with with Josh Hartnett guesses. Her eyes look especially like his. Some of her facial expressions too.

ericaomega said...

Um, wasn't the whole hoopla when he divorced Nicole Kidman that she ended up losing their first child because he didn't give her any warning?

EmEyeKay said...

Totally OT: Remember the Your Turn with weird baby names? Jeremy Sisto's children:

Charlie Ballerina Sisto
Bastian Kick Sisto

Also, this morning I found a card in my rolodex for a makeup artist at Nordstrom: Summer Sprinkle.

I had to share.

ll0273 said...

Chris Klein without a doubt. But I want to know if HE knows. And if he does how much did he get to give up paternity?

Noetje said...

^^^ And why is she wearing pajamas???

Beth said...

Actually, the middle names are the only weird part. I know a couple Sebastians that go by Bastian.

nunaurbiz said...

But look! She's standing! On her own! (though she's probably saying, "I'll beat you to a pulp if you don't pick me up, dammit!")

Beth said...

Her nose looks like Tom's?!

Dos anyone remember what his original nose looks like? He's had a tweaked at least twice.

Gouda said...

@Ericaomega The baby that Nicole Kidman miscarried was widely rumored to be Ewan McGregor's. Supposedly, they had an affair on the set of Moulin Rouge in 2000/2001, she got pregnant (until then, she thought she couldn't have kids, if I remember correctly, because she'd once had an ectopic pregnancy), and when Tom found out, he initiated divorce proceedings in mid-2001. It had been 10 years, anyway, so no skin off his nose.

Beth said...

@Gouda, that assumes that Nicole Kidman has a uterus.

EmEyeKay said...

@Gouda - LOL! "No skin off his nose" - was your pun intended?

AKM said...

I always assumed it was Chris Klein.

mngddess said...

Chris Klein. Chris Klein. Chris Klein. Looks just like him.

mngddess said...

Chris Klein. Chris Klein. Chris Klein. Looks just like him.

CandiCanee said...

I think so too & took the exact same route to this comment.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Thank you, @Gouda. I don't understand why people don't remember this.

Also, Sophia Vergara probably gets on her hands and knees every day and sends up a prayer of thanks.

Digital Influence said...

I'm thinking L. Ron. It would be just like Tom to raise his own messiah.

Mike Heathen said...

Chris Klein. Tom was married twice before and considering neither Mimi nor Nicole had any kids while they were with him, they clearly weren't the problem. Whether it is his sexuality or his potency, I think you'd have to be pretty naive to think he is the girl's father.

PunkinElf said...

If Hartnett came after Klein, then it's Hartnett's. If during the interview process, Holmes said she thought she was pregnant, she said the magic word. He didn't care. It made him look virile, knocking her up immediately, waiting til the birth (to see if it wasn't deformed and they had to buy one)

PunkinElf said...

Also, Hartnett went into a tailspin after the birth, didn't he?

& @digital influence, so many jokes come to mind, like he had a 'hand' in raising the lrh? Which 'bone' did they use for the dna? My mind booges!

yeahwhatever said...

Josh Hartnett FTW.

She sure looks like Cousin William, so I would say either him or Tom.

Tempestuous Grape said...

Will Forte, oops, I mean William Mapother.

Tara said...

I always though it was Chris Klein because he had this career track going and then the big break up with Katie he didn't work very much for about 2 years - did he have to work at that point?

It's not Tom...isn't he sterile ?
I swear this kid could remake The Omen.....she is truly a monster.

selenakyle said...

Tom.

seaward said...

Tom is her dad, there is no doubt in my mind about that. HOWEVER, I also think she was conceived and birthed waayy before what the public thinks.
I don't know if anyone else here was ever involved in ONTD, but I was a part of ONTD from the beginning (until that fuckhead brenden ruined it). There was a post 6 months before Tom & Katie went public with their relationship (hell, it may have been more than 6 months, I can't remember for sure). Someone had spotted them making out in an airport and posted a cell phone picture. Cell phone cameras were shitty back then, so it wasn't the best quality, but it was definitely them.

Sheri said...

Tom Cruise is that child's father, whether or not she is biologically his. With that said, I've always thought she looks like Tom.

Gouda said...

@PunkinElf, Hartnett came so closely after Chris Klein (and Katie was SO into him) that I wonder if he's the reason for the broken engagement.

The timeline of everything was totally smushed together - Chris and Katie called off the engagement in March '05, Katie was running around NYC with Josh Hartnett in March and April 2005 (and there were rumors he even moved her into his East Village apartment), and then Tom debuted Katie after their "business meeting" in April '05. (This was after he auditioned ScarJo, Jessica Alba and a few others.)

Remember how there were rumors in the last 2-3 months of Katie's pregnancy that she'd already given birth and had started wearing a fake bump? If Katie and Tom got together in April and she was already pregnant with Josh Hartnett's baby (as @PunkinElf said, "pregnant" being the magic word), then Katie would have given birth around February 2006. Suri was "born" in April 2006. Tom and Katie wouldn't let anybody see the baby for several months - remember how that Vanity Fair cover with Suri in September 2006 was the giant "unveiling"? She would have been a few months older by then, and easier to fudge dates. If Suri had been photographed immediately after the "September birth" looking 2 months old, that would have been suspicious, no?

It's all speculation, clearly, and I have no idea if I'm actually right, but in a theoretical gossip universe, it totally adds up. (It could just as easily add up with a different guy, of course.) Also, Katie was 26 when she and Tom got together, and she'd just cycled through 2 boyfriends in 2 months. The only way Tom, such a controlled, tight, image-concened A-lister, would have put his reputation on the line for a flighty 26-year-old actress is if they'd had a contract and he knew for certain that she was a sure bet, for whatever various reasons.

Where there's smoke, there's fire, and there's obviously *something* weird about Suri's paternity, whether it's Hartnett, Klein, William Mapother or, I don't know, Danny Devito. (Kidding.)

Clearly am procrastinating from REAL work today. :)

Texshan said...

I can't even look at this child without wanting to spank her. She strikes me as the biggest brat in the universe, and is on track to be the biggest train wreck (see what I did there?) before 20 ever seen.

She was out late at night (again!) with her mother and grandmother at an expensive restaurant for dinner. Wearing her pajamas. Her mom and grandmother were both carrying toys to keep her entertained. Here's an idea -- why not leave her at home? I know you've got a squillion servants to cater to her every whim. It's not like you HAD to take her with you. That kid is out late at night constantly, and they take her to the most none-kid-friendly places.

NernersHuman said...

How can people judge by Suri's stance whether she's being a brat or not? It looks like she's just goofing around. She's freaking smiling. I mean, she could be a demon but I don't think you can say that by just that one pic.

God, can you imagine being the most judged 5-year-old in the world?

Kevin Federline duh!

Suri and my DD were born days apart and I see Suri's actions/expressions as normal for a child of her age and her unique situation.

I doubt Suri is going to Kindy or taking gymnastics or riding a school bus like other kids her age.

FS said...

Why do people keep saying she's in her pajamas? those look like typical little girl capris to me.

Texshan said...

Nerners, if that was directed at me, I wasn't basing my opinion on this one photo. I've seen countless photos and video of her acting like a demon spawn. And I don't think this behavior is her fault -- it's her parents. They give her no structure, discipline, or boundaries. They never say no to her. They employ people to literally do ANYTHING Suri wants. Her every wish is granted and she's never exposed to other, regular kids. They are creating a recipe for disaster.
FS, the newspaper article I saw stated this was her pajamas, and when you saw her full-length from the front, they obviously are.

NernersHuman said...

Nah, @Texshan, it wasn't directed at you. And I have no doubt that she's probably a hellion, but I don't think blame should be cast her way because she really has no say in the matter. Not saying you were doing that, mind you, but I've read a lot of people opining that she's this horrible monster child like it's her own fault.

MISCH said...

Look she's a smart kid and def strong willed, she's already figured out that her mother is a wimp and she has total control over her. Wait till she goes to work on Tom...

Adorkable said...

Back in the day I thought Josh Hartnett but looking at her most recent photos I am starting to lean towards William Mapother. She looks so much like Katie as she is getting older but those eyes definitely look like WM to me.

jax said...

Hartnett. I've been saying this for YEARS!

After Katie and Josh were done, she disappeared for 3 weeks while Tom Cruise courted Sophia Vergara. When she turned him down, he turned to Katie who was ALREADY pregnant and uber catholic. Hartnett hasn't been in anything in ages and his career is almost done. Wonder why??
The rest is contracted marriage history.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

@Gouda has it EXACTLY right at 12:01. Spot on, that's precisely what happened.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Pacey.

Kidding.

Anonymous said...

Didn't Tom Cruise reveal that he was infertile back in the 80s when he was still in the infancy of his career and married to Mimi Rogers? I remember reading articles/interviews about him in the 90s that mentioned this fact repeatedly. I'm not sure if it's because he had started his 'romance' to Nicole Kidman and they thought it may have been a reason why he and Mimi divorced (besides the age difference), plus then he and Nicole started adopting kids together. I was living in Europe at the time and they were writing Tom Cruise = gay articles before anyone else and then he started suing the crap out of people.

EmEyeKay said...

@Kimberly - she's great! She did my makeup for my wedding. Do you know if she's still there? She turned me on to this incredible Lancome mascara. We sold three tubes in the time that she was doing a run-through for my big day. Other people kept bringing customers over and showing them my eyelashes and they'd say "I'll take one."

Lisa said...

Regarding Suri being a brat... How can you know? How does anyone know what her schedule is or how they discipline her? I've seen one picture of her crying in a store. One. And just a few of her looking like she'd like to have a meltdown. I would have LOVED to have a kid who only cried once in a store and almost had a meltdown or two, and I've got pretty awesome kids. That's AMAZING for a kid her age with the cameras on her all the time. ALL THE TIME! She clearly isn't a baby who doesn't notice the cameras and she doesn't like it. She's an almost 6 year old who always has people in her space. I have a feeling she's got lots of things, but I also have a feeling she's a pretty neat kid. I know plenty of people who take kids out to dinner with them, even late at night. Katie obviously takes items to entertain her, you don't hear about her having meltdowns in restaurants or theaters. I do dislike seeing her carried as much as she is, but come on, she's got pap flashing cameras and yelling at her to look their way and she wants to hide from them. Don't blame her a bit. I feel for her. Especially when she 12 and reads about how everyone had talked crap about her since she was born.

crila16 said...

Definitely Tom.

MISCH said...

Katie was already pregnant during the interview process...and this was a gift to Tom.

media_lush said...

amongst $ciontology watchers many guess that it's Tommy Davis.... he is/was the top PR dog of the cult who totally lost it during a confrontation with a BBC journalist. He is also the son of Anne Archer [also a $cion] who 'amicably' divorced Tom Cruise years ago.

Here's a comparison shot ... notice the chin...

ac said...

Let us not forget Mimi Rogers said when they were married that he wanted to " maintain the purity of his instrument." People I kid you not bc Tom's people slapped her with some type of lawsuit so fast...whoa! But she said it to Playboy mag. ( I always thought that was a strange phrase as I heard all this in high school, but even then my brain told me that I needed to keep these words).

Having said that, from the pose,we all know it's Smokin Joe Frazier. Sheesh.

Marybel said...

It ain't Tom - he's gay and firing blanks. Tom Cruise is a creepy little man.

TaterOnTheCouch said...

I've always thought that she looks exactly like William Mapother and this picture looks DEAD ON like him.

Anonymous said...

I was going to put my two cents in but then was only going to say exactly what TaterOnTheCouch said.
The first time I saw a photo of William Mapother it became too obvious.

SnowCherries said...

I agree that she looks just like Ethan from Lost. Especially from this angle.

Anotheramy said...

She sure looks like William Mopother, wow.
To add to earlier comments. Katie disappeared from the public eye around 7 months pregnant for a couple of weeks. At one point Tom was in another country and when asked about Katie, she appeared the next day but from a distance.
Katie reappeared publicly a few weeks later with her ever changing belly and was seen EVERY DAY, shopping. One would think a woman who is 8-9 months pregnant would be looking at baby items or childrens toys or books. Not our Katie, she was shopping for shoes. Womens shoes. Then she conveniently had the baby just as Tom was pushing his movie. The BEST. PR. EVER. They reappeared a couple of weeks after Suris "birth" and threw a frisbee back and forth with her nursing bra sticking up over the top of her shirt. Nice PR move.
I also think its possible they split back when she was doing my three sons or whatever it was, and that there was a quiet custody battle that she won.
Originally Tom was going to move to NY with her, then she wound up going alone. He visited often, and paraded his family around New York, or just out to the sidewalk for the paps. Katie looked like hell warmed over, even before the show started rehearsing. She and Tom are seen in public once a month now unless there's rumors about them, otherwise its just her and Suri. She looked like hell for a long time after but looks pretty good now.

Anotheramy said...

http://www.zimbio.com/photos/William+Mapother/LA+Film+Festival+Screening+Another+Earth/J4ba5jyNAhv

Then again, William Mapother looks like TC so...

Mooshki said...

Josh Hartnett.

Katie was pregnant before she had that infamous meeting with Cruise and his people, so there's no way it's Mapother or L.Ron.

Jaime said...

She looks just like Tom cruise to me. Know his relationship to Katie is a farce but that's his kid.

Anonymous said...

@FS,,,I spotted them as pajamas from the first because I am sitting here wearing pajamas with pants out of that same fabric. Only in a much larger size. Much.

Josh Hartnett. She looks exactly like him and the whole timeline fits.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I can see Chris Klein or Josh Harnett. Bottom line is, I never thought it was Tom's.

AbderianLaughter said...

@Media_Lush...wow, that is an undeniable resemblence.

It will be interesting to see her grow. I think we will see a stronger resemblence to *whoever* her father is in the coming years

ardleigh said...

I have said this before a thousand times. Control freak Tom would not let her be anyone but family and William's roles started to pick up.

Karen said...

I feel she is Tom's daughter.He is a good father regardless. I met him on a movie set where I worked as an extra and he is superfriendly and kind to everyone. His sister is the real nutcase! Total control freak.

Beth said...

No one is questioning whether Tom Cruise is her dad. It's the biological aspect that we are discussing.

Leslie said...

Hard to say except she is not Tom's. I remember all the Mimi Rogers stuff and that's when gay rumors began. He was also going to be a monk if I recall correctly. He chose Katie because she has brown eyes and hair and it is easy to produce a child with another man who also has dark hair and eyes - a sperm donor. High up in Scientology so...
